Most believable defense ever: Woody Harrelson claims he mistook photographer for zombie

I have a very simple belief system: I believe in God, I believe in family, I believe in country, and I believe that it should be legal to beat up celebrity-stalking, intrusive vermin with cameras — known in some circles as “photographers.”

Last Wednesday, actor Woody Harrelson smashed the camera of a TMZ photographer and pushed him in the face (according to a complaint filed by the photographer), but Harrelson’s defense scores some points for both humor and accuracy:

Woody Harrelson defended his clash with a photographer at a New York airport Wednesday night as a case of mistaken identity — he says he mistook the cameraman for a zombie.
[…]
“I wrapped a movie called ‘Zombieland,’ in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character,” Harrelson said in a statement issued Friday by his publicist.

“With my daughter at the airport I was startled by a paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie,” he said.

Quite understandably. Good on ya, Woody!

As a matter of fact, I also supported Sean Penn back when he was treating celebrity photographers like piñatas on Cinco de Mayo.

It’s like I always say, “I may not agree with your politics, but I’ll defend to the death your right to beat up celebrity-stalking photographers.”

Update:

ArizonaNeanderthal commented…

Except for that “to the death” part I like it!

Yeah, that was a little overstated, wasn’t it? I’d actually defend them to the point where anything better to do came up — and it wouldn’t take much.
